"Elegancia, estilo, historia y calidad".
Since opening in 2005, Mellow Velo has been known for its world-class service shop. From vintage road bikes to long travel carbon fiber mountain bikes, we understand the nuance and possibilities of repairing and restoring nearly anything.
"Increíble tienda de bicicletas, la mejor de la ciudad, sin duda. Personal inteligente, capacitado y amable. ¡Simplemente un gran lugar para hacer todo lo relacionado con las bicicletas de una sola vez! ¡Muchas gracias!"
Road & Gravel
Gravel bikes have quickly become the most requested style of bike from Mellow Velo. They allow a more curious road rider to venture off the perfect pavement. We sell a wildly diverse range of these bikes from the lightest weight, to the most indestructible. As for our more traditional road riders, we continue to offer the finest options from brands all over the world. We also co-sponsor the Racing Apparel Team based here in Santa Fe.
Located just minutes from some of Santa Fe's best trails, we take mountain biking seriously. Industry-leading brands such as Santa Cruz, Pivot, Ibis, Orbea, BMC, and Salsa allow us to offer a truly diverse number of options. We are ready to help you make your new bike decision with confidence.
The e-bike revolution is upon is! The e-bike segment of the market is booming and we have been riding that wave for years now! We carry the finest e-bikes out there and have one for every riding style, from hauling kids to hitting the trails.
Adventure & City
Not everyone is looking to ride 150 miles over the weekend. In a world saturated with exotic materials, it's refreshing working on and riding classic city bikes and weekend adventure rigs.
"Such a great crew, all bike enthusiasts that ride every day, super friendly. This is the shop for high quality bikes, that hard to find Italian Steel, and rare bikes you don't see anywhere else! Custom builds are their specialty. Dave is a great guy, and that reflects through his employees. The crew downstairs are the best in town!!"
We offer some of the finest rental bikes in Santa Fe. We have a selection of premium road bikes, mountain bikes, and e-bikes. We are located just off the plaza downtown, making us a great location to start any ride!
Our online store is currently under construction. Check back again to order all of your Mellow Velo gear here.
Mellow Velo is a business operated by avid cyclists and outdoorspeople. This blog is a hub for some of our weekend adventures, updates about the shop, special offers and other cool info related to cycling in Santa Fe and New Mexico.
Try Before You Buy at Santa Fe’s Mellow Velo
“Mellow Velo’s proximity to the tourist areas, the wilderness, and endless dirt roads make it an excellent hub for cycling in Santa Fe. Swing through, say hey to the team, and maybe they’ll pull a shot of espresso for you from their insane Gaggia Orione machine. Here I thought an E61 was a sick machine for a bike shop!"
Rawson’s Ombré Orbea Alma Rigid 29er
“As a kid of the 90’s, Rawson was really drawn to bright colors. Chartreuse, turquoise, fuchsia, purple, and other hues really stuck with him as a kid. Perhaps that was the inspiration behind this Orbea Alma M-LTD rigid 29er."
Jonah and His Kokopelli Warthog Ti Hardtail 29er
“For Jonah, a local of Santa Fe, and an employee at Mellow Velo, the bicycle has helped develop his independence as well as a vehicle to meander around his homeland. His family is one of the deeply embedded heritage households and have been in the area for hundreds of years. Just north of Santa Fe is the town of Chimayo where his family has been weaving for generations under the brand Ortega."
Spaghetti Western: A XCR Tommasini X Fire Disc Road Build
“Mellow Velo, purveyors of modern bikes, with a long history of building up classic Italian road racing machines, recently completed this build for a customer back on the East Coast. Adam, the owner of the bike, refinishes mouthpieces for saxophones, so as you can imagine, he has a particular penchant for procuring pristine pedal machines like this one. Luckily for him, David from Mellow Velo has a soft spot for modern Italian-made frames."
David’s Creamsicle Vicious Cycles SS Cruiser
“David has a special relationship with Carl Schlemowitz, the owner of Vicious. You might even call them good friends. He knew Carl from when he lived in New York and has a ‘grip’ of bikes from Carl down in the Mellow Velo archives. It’s not often that you see a Vicious in the Western United States, so I was surprised to find a basement full of them when I first toured Mellow Velo back in December of last year."
